SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 10 @ ORIGIN ARTS AND COMMUNITY CENTRE, 57 AVE LYNDALE AVE - 15h45
Ottawa-born singer-songwriter Rita Carter has become one of her city’s most darling and well-respected voices. Rita’s reputation as a sincere and talented performer is a testament to her creative ability and faith in music, as a source of personal and communal revelation. Rita’s honesty, surety and strong vocal presence have made her a sought-after and much-admired performer, as evidenced by her appearances in some of Ottawa’s most well-known and loved venues, as well as at House of Paint’s Annual Urban Art Festival in 2014 & 2017. Her notoriety and acclaim have also helped to take her soulful music on stages overseas. She recently wrapped up The Wake Up Tour in England, aimed to promote her new single “Wake Up”. Rita Carter’s range of experience has prompted her to move into arenas beyond singing and songwriting. She is a host and event organizer, working alongside some of the best in the business as a core staff member of Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest and CityFolk Festival. She has also been a frequent mentor to emerging artists in her city. To Miss Carter, music is a weapon, a peace offering, and an expression of deep humanity, humility and strength!
